Japan captain Michael Leitch is targeting the Pacific Nations Cup game against Fiji on July 27 for his long-awaited return to action.

The 30-year-old back-row forward has not played since Dec. 15 due to a chronic groin injury, but he is back training with the national team and hoping to get some meaningful match time against Fiji, Tonga and the United States in the PNC, and South Africa on Sept. 6, before the Rugby World Cup kicks off on Sept. 20.
